This week Science, Space, and Technology Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (TX-21) announced Rep. Ralph Hall (TX-04) will be serving as Chairman Emeritus for the 113th Congress following his Chairmanship of the Committee in the 112th Congress.

"I am eager to continue working on the Science, Space, and Technology Committee to ensure a robust space exploration program, across-the-board energy solutions, and EPA accountability, among other initiatives," said Hall. "Now more than ever, it is crucial that Congress advance good policies that will foster innovation, job creation, and economic growth so our country retains its competitive leadership and all Americans can prosper."

The Science, Space, and Technology Committee was established in 1958 and holds jurisdiction over all non-defense federal scientific research and development, as well as jurisdiction over programs at federal agencies including NASA, the Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Science Foundation, the Federal Aviation Administration, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
